Directed by William Wyler tor M-G-M. Song, "Midsummer's Day," by Gene Lockhart The cast: Mrs. Miniver Greer Garson Clem Miniver Walter Pidgeon Carol Beldon.. Terpsa Wright Lady Beldon Dame May Whitty Foley -Reginald Owen Mr. Ballard ...Henry Travers Vin Miniver..... Richard Ney Vicar Henry Wilcoxon Toby Miniver Christopher Severn Gladys Brenda Forbes Judy Miniver.. Clare Sandars Ada Marie de Becker German riyer...... Helmut Dantine PYed John Abbott Simnson Connie Leon Horace Rhys Williams "Mrs. Miniver," adapted , from a novel describing the courage and strength of an everyday English family in wartime, turns out to be one of the most magnificently human and impressive pictures of the decade. It is the sort of film that alternately grips you with its poignancy and delights you with its domestic humor. Starting with a church scene, it ends in the same place, but the peaceful old edifice has been cracked and broken by bombs from Lrerman planes. The walls are crumbling but those who are left to pray are more steadfast and firm than during the years of lazy peace. One finds it easy to laugh, and easy to weep during the excitements, the romances and the triumphs of "Mrs. Miniver." Here is a film so superbly written, so shrewdly directed and so excellently acted that you forget the technique and the artistry of the picture in order to live yourself in the story. One thinks first of the plot and only belatedly that "Mrs. Miniver" is the best cinema that Hollywood has offered this year. It is an intimate tale that William Wyler has given through his directorial magic. You see the epic tale of Dunkerque told through the eyes of the men who piloted those pitiful, heroic little pleasure boats to the relief of their trapped countrymen. The perils that assailed them are indicated when Walter Pidgeon, the Mr. Miniver of the story, sails back to his quiet home inlet and the children run their hands over the torn sails the bullet-ridden planks. But there is honest, gay laughter just a little later when Mr. Miniver listens to his wife's "tale of how she captured a German aviator, and in vexation delivers a husbandly spank when she becomes a trifle annoying in her chatty account. There's humor of the upper middle-class English type when j Mrs. Miniver, handsomely and effec tively portrayed by lovely Greer j Garson, decides to pit her wits and her charm against the naughty, ! domineering Lady Beldon. Mrs. Miniver is on the side of true love her son and Lady Beldon's grand daughter but it takes feminine maneuvering and finesse before Lady Beldon reluctantly gives her consent to what she considers a social come-down for pretty Carol Beldon. This is followed by deep tragedy the sort of thing which tries the souls of a staunch people when death rains from the skies and strikes the lovely bride. Teresa Wright gives color and sweetness to the role of Carol Richard Ney is tender and brave and heart-breakingly quiet as the young husband. There are no especial laurels to hand out to the cast of "Mrs. Miniver," as even the smallest parts are played sensitively and intelligently. The picture is restrained both in directorial treatment and acting, which tends to heighten the dramatic effects to a powerful degree. Never has there been a picture which pulses so strongly and so vibrantly of real, authentic life. It is hard to realize that some of the scenes were made inside a studio because they are so eloquently natural anl down to earth; so filled with the richness and conviction of everyday experience. Dame May Whitty, for instance, as the local aristocrat, is such a blend of selfish pride and pathetic loneliness that she never seems to be acting at all. Henry Travers gives a distinguished performance in a contrasting role, of the humble station master whose ambition ln life is to win the local rose competition. Above all, "Mrs. Miniver" brings a tingle to your heart and moisture to your eyes by the England that is recaptured on the screen the England of quiet countrysides, "Alice in Wonderldhd" and village garden parties. The tingle changes to a throti the happy tears become dry-eyed admiration, as one watches the England that was to emerge into the harassed, terrorized but firmly courageous England that is now. M. L.

Elsie Houston at Satire Room Arki Yavensonne, uptown Zieg-feld, who is always doing the unusual, comes up this week with a real scoop when he offers the fa mous Elsie Houston. Miss Houston, whose reputation as an artist is as great in Rio De Janeiro and Paris as it is in New York, makes her Boston debut tomorrow night. Critics have acclaimed her vocal talents and she has scored definite successes in Town Hall recitals, symphony concerts, operas and in such smart gatherings as that of the Rainbow Room. A description of the talents of this famous South American star is not easy. Sufficient to say, she sings in 14 languages and features in her repertoire voodoo songs and other novel arrangements. Romo Vincent Returns to Mayfair Two notes of good cheer emanate from the Mayfair this week with the announcement that Romo Vincent, famous roly-poly comic and recent star of "Banjo-Eyes' is returning next Wednesday and the continuation of the current revue which is one of the finest of the season. Making the most of his large figure Vincent is one of America's leading cafe comedians and it's a mystery why motion pictures haven't caught the nimble wit who hails from California. Here and There "Songs by Jane Pickens," four words that explain simply the reason why there are large dinner and supper audiences nightly in the beautiful Oval Room of the Copley Plaza. ... Of course, Miss Pickens gets grand support musically from Ray Morten and his Orchestra. . . . Hildergarde opens at the Oval Room, Aug. 12. . . . Marjorie Knapp, the 17-year-old honey, who stops the show wih her blush-inducing "bunny" number in Michael Todd's "Star and Garter," will be guest of Leon and Eddie's in New York Sunday night. . . . Wq mention this in passing because from these parties the girls really get started on their careers. . . . The Rio Casino, after the slight fire of Wednesday night, is operating as if nothing happened. . . . As a matter of fact, nothing much did happen and dam age was kept to a minimum, accord- METROPOLITAN "This Above All" "It Happened in Flalbush" "This Above All" by R. C. Sherriff from the novel by Eric Knight. Directed by Anatole Litvak. 20th Century-Fox film.

Dr. Ferris Parsons Vicar Fireman .Alexander Knox .Queenie Leonard ..Melville Cooper Jill Esmond .Holmes Herbert ...Arthur Shields .Dennis Hoey .Thomas Louden Andy Clyde Brilliant acting Tyrone Power was never more convincing in his entire film career and sensitive direction make "This Above All" the most beautiful romanace of the current war films. It is the love story of an English aristocrat, who knows that England could be a better nation but that it is still worth fighting for, and a heroic soldier who doubts that he is risking his life for democracy. Love, patriotism, and duty are discounted by Clive Briggs, who deserts after winning medals for bravery, and the picture deals with his love for a girl from the class of English people he hates. Eventually he decides that the England of today should be defended in order that there may be a finer England tomorrow. Throughout the film one catches glimpses of the old and the new the hide-bound haughtiness of the aristocracy in their magnificent drawing rooms the democracy of a girl from a home of wealth sharing life as a member of the W. A. A. F. with a girl who might have been her own maid. The strange love affair of a mysterious stranger who admits to having been in the Army and the clear-eyed, lovely Prudence Cathaway is a direct product of war's upheaval. The two discuss England between kisses they discover their mutual love amid the AMUSEMENTS XETER KEN. 706T "TORTILLA FLAT' r Spencer Tracy Hedy Lamarr 'Remarkable Andrew' William Holden Ellen Drew Sunday 'MY GAL SAL NOWjlr..d'J,Sg MAD MEN OF EUROPE UNLEASH WAR'S NEWEST HORROR'.! f CO-HIT BORIS KARLOFF BEFORE f HANG NOT A NetfcSHEEl BUT GREAT DRAMA OF LOVE LMIDST WAR'S ATROCITIES NOW PLAYING , FIRST TIME AT, POPULAR PB'CEi WHAT WAS LOVt LIKt A MILLION TtAha Auuf SO AMAZING YOU WON'T UPTOWN AT SYMPHONY STA. air r.nnniTinnFh RITA NAY WORTH-VICTOR MATURE "MY GAL SAL" IN TECHNICOLOR LYNN BARI-- NIGHT BEFORE THE DIVORCE 1 HAMILTON , J JACK EDWARDS ing to Al Taxier, manager, who is also quick to say that the "Lamb Yocum Ice Revue" is still wowing them. . . .

The lovely, sultry Sandra Lee, whose voice has been heard around Boston recently, is scheduled for an audition with Glen Miller. . . . If the beautiful songstress hooks on national networks will have a new singing star. . . . Jackie Edwards, Duke University singing maestro of the band bearing his name at the Statler Terrace Room, is making friends nightly with his smooth rhythm and the novel arrangements of his "Four Jacks" quartet. . . . Joe Holton, 20th Century-Fox talent scout is in Boston, looking over the personable Jimmy Marr, singing star at the Steuben's Vienna Room and The Cave. . . . Another who has caught his eye is Mary Foran, the "deadpan" Mary, of The Forans . . . . Two dancers who are bound to be heard from soon are Jimmy Joyce and Bobbie Robinson . . . . Incidentally, Jimmy is a lovely female acrobatic dancer and Bobbie is a shapely miss who can really tap. sordidness of a resort hotel. The acting is distinguished and compelling. Joan Fontaine proves her right to her recent Academy award by giving a rounded and honest performance as a girl who is never cheap, despite her unconventional affair with Briggs, and whose love is as strong as her belief in her native land. Tyrone Power has portrayed several roles, some of them good and others not worth remembering, but as the sorely beset hero, who deserts his companions, not from cowardice, but from mental unrest, he offers a sympathetic and unforgetable characterization. These two play the principal roles their problem is the vortex of the story and only Thomas Mitchell, as Monty, the mate of Clive Briggs. has important iootage. Mitchell, also a former Academy winner, is excellent as the understanding sergeant. 4 There will probably be more pic tures of the war-stories with an American background, but there will be none which describes more profundly and emotionally the struggle that goes on in the minds of young men who do not want to die to preserve a society which they believe should be done away with. "This Above All ' has a sig nificance far more powerful than can be seen at first glance; it is a love story that is all the more gripping because it is based on a conflict of ideals and ideas. The associate film, "It Happened n Flatbush." is a drama about base ball with Lloyd Nolan in the role of a club manager and ex-star of the diamond. It is his job to get out a winning team and to keep the owners of the club from selling in disgust because they are losing money. . Carole Landis appears as a dis interested society girl who inherits part of the club and wishes she hadn't. Robert Armstrong is a sports writer who heckles Nolan and Sara Allgood is excellent as the sports minded club owner. M. L. A.
